It doesn't look formally specified anywhere, beyond what the autotools
requirements are.  I suspect that means in practice it's what the devs
are using.  Also, gnulib's position on sign comparison issues is to
ignore them, so the "fix" from our end would probably be to pragma them
away... but that assumes this is the only issue, which hasn't been
checked yet.

Be well,
